Eddy Lee's parents maintained and improved the Red River Cemetery from the early 2000 until present day. However, to continue on the Bullington's are looking to retire from this endeavor and must pass the torch onto others. They had volunteers help and of course Red River Township supported during this endeavor and very thankful for their efforts.
